That Hitchcock moment…

 

Downstairs

It’s still early

As he sets about

Making tea

And soon

He will leave

A note,

Unsigned,

Explaining,

Then let himself out

Quietly.

 

Upstairs,

In the front bedroom,

Curtains are pulled

But don’t quite

Meet,

Fresh sunlight

Edges

A dressing table,

One drawer, half

Open,

Slides over

Clothes,

Rumpled back sheets,

Bruised ankles,

Bare feet,

Limbs rearranged

 

And already stiffening.
